TradeMark East Africa (TMEA)
Exciting Opportunity in Trade & Regional Development in Africa
TradeMark East Africa (TMEA) ¡s an aid-for-trade organisation that was established with the aim of growing prosperity ¡n East Africa through increased trade.
TMEA operates on a not-for-profit basis and is funded by the development agencies of the following countries: Belgium, Canada, Denmark, European Union, Finland, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, United Kingdom and United States of America.
TMEA works closely with East African Community (EAC) institutions, national governments, the private sector and civil society organisations.
TMEA, with an annual expenditure of around US$100 million, is now the leading aid-for-trade facility in the world. TMEA has its headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya with vibrant and successful operations in EAC (Arusha), Burundi (Bujumbura), Democratic Republic of Congo (Bukavu), Ethiopia and the Horn (Addis Ababa & Hargeisa), Rwanda (Kigali), South Sudan (Juba), Tanzania (Dar es salaam) and Uganda (Kampala).
The first phase of TMEA delivered exceptional results which directly contributed to substantial gains in East Africa’s trade and regional integration environment ¡n terms of reduced transit times, improved border efficiency, and reduced barriers to trade.
We are now ¡n the second phase and we aim to deliver even more large-scale impact to maximise the potential benefits of aid-for-trade interventions which lead to sustainable and inclusive prosperity through job creation, poverty reduction and enhanced economic welfare.
TMEA is now expanding its trade facilitation programme and launching operations in Malawi.
